First, you will need:
- Cardstock- any colors you like
- Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cartridge
- Hot glue
- Floral wire
Next, tightly roll the paper starting from the outside. I let the paper uncoil on its own to make the rose look like it has bloomed. Glue the coiled paper to the tab left in the center of the flower.
Now take one piece of floral wire and wrap one end around your marker. Depending on how larger your flower is will determine how wide your loop should be. Since the pink roses were very small I only needed a small loop. Flatten loop to act as a stand for your rose and glue together.
Tip: you can cut floral wire at different lenghts to give your bouquet dimension.
That's all. A nice, simple craft to add to your Valentine decor. My bouquets featured 3 different sizes, edged in pink, dark red, and gold. The heart votives are available at Target for $2.50 per set of 2 (I found mine in the bargain section when you first walk in).
Happy Valentine's Day
